Even oil companies have begun to realize the future will not be nearly as reliant on fossil fuels, and Royal Dutch Shell is moving to safeguard its future business.
The Dutch oil company acquired NewMotion, an electric-car charging station firm, for an undisclosed price.
NewMotion, also based in the Netherlands, has more than 30,000 electric-car charging stations in Europe, according to CNN.
The company specializes in converting normal parking spaces into charging points for electric cars.
